Microsoft Powerpoint - Want to open multiple windows

Hello there.  A user of mine has a dual headed video card.  He has two 19 inch monitors and wants to run 2 instances of PowerPoint XP on a Windows XP Pro box so that he can view two sets of slides side by side.  Why? Dunno.

Anyway, I've been looking at the SDI/MDI thing a bit and I thought this would do the trick.  Alas, I made the change that Microsoft suggests in KB 230684  - WD2000: New Word Instance Appears to Run for Each Document where is tates how to turn off SDI for Excel and Powerpoint.  It isn't working the way it "should"

Any thoughts on how to make it work?

Thanks.

Howard
